Long life span
The Noviomagus Bone Mill is an extremely solid device without the risk for abrasion. The milling drums are made of a hardened stainless steel alloy. Even if used frequently the drums do not show any sign of wear. This combination guarantees high quality bone grafts and a durable instrument with no necessity for maintenance. The design prevents metal on metal contact, thus eliminating the risk of metal contamination of the bone graft. A warranty of five years is given for regular hospital use. No service, maintenance or replacement costs need to be made during these first five years, and probably many more. There are Noviomagus Bone Mills in use today which have a track record of 15 years of hospital use and are still working properly.
Bone grafts with an intact trabecular structure
In order to create a stable and solid bone bed during bone impaction grafting procedures it is important to have bone grafts with an intact trabecular structure. The Noviomagus Bone Mill guarantees bone grafts with an intact trabecular structure because the milling technology is based on breaking out grafts rather than scraping off or crushing bone.
Six types of milling drums for different surgical indications
When using bone grafts during trauma-, orthopaedic-, maxillofacial- or spinal surgery, it is important to use grafts of the correct size. The Noviomagus Bone Mill has six interchangeable milling drums that are capable of producing a wide range of different chip sizes, fit for all surgical indications.
|Milling Drum||Application||Mean Length|
|Extra Coarse||Acetabular bone grafting||10 – 15 mm|
|Coarse||Acetabular and proximal femoral bone grafting||8 – 10 mm|
|Fine||Femoral and spinal bone grafting||5 – 8 mm|
|Extra Fine||Distal femoral and spinal bone grafting||3 – 5 mm|
|Extra Extra Fine||Spinal bone grafting and void filling||1 – 3 mm|
|Extra Extra Extra Fine||Bone powder for dental and other indications||0,5 – 1 mm|
